Confluent Platform 5.5 is out, and Tim Berglund (Senior Director of Developer Advocacy, Confluent) is here to give you the latest updates! The first is improved schema management and Confluent Schema Registry support for Protobuf and JSON, making these components pluggable. The second is better support for languages other than Java within the sphere of librdkafka. And finally, this release includes an upgrade to ksqlDB, which expands its functionality, supports more data types, increases availability for pull queries, and adds a new aggregate function.
